It’s mentioned practically everywhere—the news, detective shows, that obnoxious friend who uses words like “insouciant” or “sesquipedalian” into small talk—but it’s now taken for granted that people know what DNA is. Sure, we all know DNA is the code of life…but what does that even mean?
Rare Genomics Institute (RG) today announced the Amplify Hope Initiative, a new study aimed at determining how crowdfunding can promote scientific research to help rare disease patients.
Recent studies published in the journal CELL have all reached a similar conclusion: DNA in eukaryotes may contain a sixth DNA base.
Telomeres may be able to tell the future as scientists could use aging telomeres to detect early signs of cancer.
The 'One Truth 818' skin care formula contains the world's most powerful telomerase activation molecule, TAM-818, and is now sold in the USA by Immortal Cell Sciences.

Researchers from Yale have successfully fixed the genetic mutation most frequently responsible for causing cystic fibrosis, a condition that primarily affects the lungs and can result in long-term breathing difficulties, frequent respiratory infections and other symptoms.
DNA probes help scientists to detect a specific gene in a long DNA sequence. According to Dr. Michael A. Pfaller, DNA probes are “single-stranded pieces of nucleic acid, labeled with a specific tracer (isotope, enzyme, or chromophore), that will hydrogen bond (hybridize) with complementary single-stranded pieces of DNA (or RNA) under the appropriate conditions of pH, temperature, and iconic strength.” The Foundation for Genomics and Population Health website has a helpful video about...
Bacillus subtilis, also known as hay bacillus or grass bacillus, is a Gram-positive, catalase-positive bacterium commonly found in soil. It is rod-shaped and a member of the genus Bacillus. It also has the ability to form a tough, protective endospore, allowing the organism to tolerate extreme environmental conditions. B. subtilis has historically been classified as an obligate aerobe, though recent research has proven this to not be strictly correct. It is not a human pathogen although...
